The story is set in "real" world Storybrooke and fairytale land every episode contains flashbacks between both worlds the story's of the past and present.

The central story of Once upon a time focus's primarily on the main characters Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) Henry (Jared Gilmore) Prince "Charming" James (Josh Dallas) And Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) However expect almost every one of your favourite characters to appear at some point;
Geppetto, Pinocchio, Maleficent, Jiminy Cricket, Genie of the Lamp, Pongo, Red Riding hood, Hansel and Gretal and many, many more.

The story begins with Prince Charming finding Snow White in her glass coffin, He kisses her, she wakes up, now in the books, and movies this is as far as we get, but what happens next?, we are about to find out.... The Evil queen interrupts their wedding and says she will enact her revenge by casting a curse on everyone, she will take away everything and everyone they love, So that she is the only one who gets her happy ending. I will not go into further detail as I do not want to spoil it for anyone. The running theme is focused around this, however every episode is made fresh as we meet a new character in detail and see how their story is linked. I was personally waiting for the Red Riding Hood story and it was fabulous!.

The story is solid, the series well cast, but it's what you expect from the writers and creators who are none other than Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz the makers of the series Lost, For those of you who are Lost fan's there are some lovely little reference's to the show within Once upon a time, such as The Evil Queen's/Regina's Door number, Oceanic Airlines, MacCutcheon Whisky, and Apollo candy bars.

All in all a great show. it's 22 episodes long so good value for money and it's been renewed for season two where there have been hints of new realms....

I love this show! my favourite by far, created & written by 'Lost' alum Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz this show is awesome! it definitely has 'Lost' esque nuances, one being a timeline that twists & turns through two timelines whilst never losing the thread & becoming confusing.

Extremely well written, you need to watch it to understand but the actors in the show have two sides let's say. Personally I think the characters in the show are the strongest aspect, the writing in general is brilliant, a show is nothing without a script after all however the casting is also so strong, none more so then the character of Rumpelstiltskin sublimely played by Robert Carlyle, both of his characters are compelling & so very watchable. The whole cast is strong & you will find at least one that you love in no time.

Filmed in beautiful Vancouver in stunning locations, being a keen rider myself you've no idea what I'd give to canter through that enchanted forest, the set design & costumes are magnificent, the whole show has such high production values as you would expect with a Disney production, with I imagine a fairly generous budget. It has wonderful & creative storytelling, romance, drama, action, intrigue, it's truly a very special show.

I saw an earlier comment that said it's not up to the standard of HBO's 'Game Of Thrones', I personally prefer this as the sex & violence of GOT doesn't appeal to me, that does not make this show second rate!
If you enjoy creative, wonderful storytelling, a struggle between good & evil, compelling characters & above all a love story then give this a try & become spellbound like the rest of us 'Oncers', cannot wait for the second season, bring it on!

OK, so I could go on and on about how much I love this series. But I won't bore you! Suffice to say, this is a little bit different from other things currently on TV and I'm hooked. The story and the wide variety of personalities and characters are interesting. No maidens in distress awaiting the gallant knight to save them from the glass mountain here, OH NO!! Here the maidens in distress pick up their own sword and the knight is not unmanned by being the one rescued. It's got humour, adventure, romance and scary bits. And some my favourite characters on TV EVER!!!
All actors do a brilliant job. The writing is amazing and I enjoy the "LOST-uesq" storytelling with flashbacks.

For anyone who likes fairy tales and don't mind a bit of artistic freedom from writers - this is the series to watch!

Oh, and, if you don't like fairy tales, I'll give you the perfect reason to watch it anyway; ROBERT CARLYLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nuff said!

Here ends my not so very structured/ unbaised review.

The premise of Once Upon a Time can sound a bit naff - fairytale characters are transported into the modern world and live ordinary small town American lives without any memory of their past identities. But this is a surprisingly gripping drama, with some likeable characters and decent acting. Every episode features sections in the modern world and flashback sections in the fairytale world, usually focussing on one particular character or one particular aspect of a story. It's not just a dull retelling of familiar stories though - 'Once' rehashes stories, sometimes taking very unexpected and clever angles. This works better sometimes than others, but at it's best can result in twists that genuinely surprise. As well as the subverting of fairytales, there is a broader story arc holding the whole thing together, centred around the efforts to break the curse and return the inhabitants back to their fantasy world. Some of the storylines are quite dark, so it's not for little kids, but I think the 12 rating is a bit high. It would appeal to teenagers, but there's plenty for adults too. Could make good family viewing if you have older children and are looking for something to watch together. It's a long series at 22 episodes, so there's plenty to see here, and a second series is being broadcast in the US. Some of the special effects are a bit sorry by modern standards, and occasionally it can tend towards the sugary (it's made by Disney after all) but I can forgive that because this story has real heart and is great fun.
